This property has nice surroundings but baby the walls are like paper towels. You can hear Everything!! Not like muffled the clear conversation!!! And the rooms above you worse!! Every foot step is heard!! It was a last min vacation so it served it’s purpose. I wouldn’t recommend if you are looking for a quiet get away!!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I did not like that there were no hangers, microwave or soap in the room. Very skimpy on towels too. Did love the vibe and fun activities in the lobby.

Liked: Staff & service, amenities
I expected a cleaner area after staying in the same hotel in different areas. The elevator could have been better maintained, the carpeting in the hall was stained and needed vacuuming. Our bathroom could have used a more thorough cleaning “ around the edges”

The loft design was a refreshing change from the typical hotel room. Bed (king) was comfy. Big screen smart TV was nice.
